Château de Pibarnon White Rhone Blend Bandol Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

It is important to note that the soil at Château de Pibarnon is unique, differing even from that of its neighbors further down the slope. As a result of a geological anomaly purported to have taken place at the end of the Mesozoic Era, Pibarnon’s soils contain large quantities of blue marl and limestone, as well as fossil material which is 150 million years older than that found in other parts of the appellation. The dearth of nutrition provided by these stony, fossil-studded soils ensures that the vines achieve maximum vigor through their daily struggle to survive. Traditional gobelet training is practiced as well as green harvesting, which keeps yields down to an average of 35hl/ha. After 30%-50% de-stemming, vinification takes place in stainless steel vats. The wine is then transferred to large oak casks for élevage.
